I love making cakes and decorating them and recently my friend asked me to make a birthday cake for her twin boys who turned 8 last week. She requested a liverpool football cake. At first I thought I would do a football pitch and stick some players on it, but then I realised this was not going to very Liverpool focused but just another football pitch and I wanted something a little more personal.
I the decided on doing the football shirts and again my original plan was to do them a shirt each with an 8 on the back and their name but again when I thought about it, it seemed a little boring as after all it would just be a cake covered in red icing with a white number and name on.
I finally decided on a shirt shaped cake each but from the front with the white stripes, the logo and the sponsor across the front, and then I wrote Happy 8th birthday 'H' and Happy 8th birthday 'W', under the cakes on the board. In the interests of not showing the boys names, I will just post a picture of one of the cakes but they were both identical and I feel really chuffed with the results. Apparently the boys were over the moon as well x
